This the same area my car got broken into. Fortunately i caught them and had the cops track them down. They are doing it with the same car. I hear it once or twice a week around 3-4 am. I have called the police, but they say there is nothing they can do about it. I find it odd. I know for sure its them, i have seen the car, i have heard the car, i have chased the car. Its the same car each night.

Some car salvage sales are set so that the public can purchase repairable parts for automobiles that they may need for fixing their own car.
